GUN BARREL CITY -- Century 21 Excite Realty agents have moved to a new location after getting locked out of their former offices by building owner L.D. Evans, according to local business sources.
Some of the agents who worked for broker Jim Sutton relocated to new agencies, but most of the agents moved to the new address at 1901 W. Main Street.
Agents were given three days to remove their belongings from the office.
Sutton, who informed the agents of the developments in an e-mail, reportedly has lost the Century 21 franchise effective Dec. 31. Agents at the new location will continue to use the name of Century 21 Excite Realty until the end of the year.
A new agency with a new name yet to be determined will be headed by real estate agent Karen Jentzen as broker.
Jentzen, who also worked for Century 21 Excite Realty, is in the process of obtaining her broker license, and she reportedly wants to name the new agency Excite Realty, if the name can be purchased.
Jentzen, who is from Red Oak, is described as a multi-million dollar producer who specializes in rural and suburban properties, including waterfront and vacation homes, in promotional materials.
Century 21 Excite Realty employed 24 agents, according to Cedar Creek Lake real estate advertisements.
